BCVideo: Reliving Boston College's Top-Ranked Defense

On Thursday Boston College released a hype video reliving the Eagles' almost impenetrable defense. BC ranked atop the nation in total defense, but were just 3-9 on the season.

"To me, there's nothing better than when our defense takes the field and everyone knows they're in for a long day."

Those words were uttered by head coach Steve Addazio earlier this year on WBZ. And he made sure to give almost every opponent his team faced a long day. 

The Boston College Eagles defense was ranked atop the nation in total defense and in the top 10 in almost every statistical category. 

Multiple defensive players received awards and nominations following the season including linebackers Steven Daniels and Matt Milano, defensive tackle Connor Wujciak, and defensive back Justin Simmons were all named to the All-ACC team. Wujciak and Daniels also received All-New England honors. 

The Eagles were just 3-9 on the season despite having such a terrific defense in large part to their offense, which struggled to move the ball. The offense was plagued with injuries and inexperience throughout and never scored more than 17 points per game in the last three-quarters of the season. 

But, the defense should be remembered, and so BC Athletics put together a hype video, reliving the impenetrable unit that was the 2015 Boston College defense.
